Hi,

Send me a message through my profile with accesss to your WP admin panel.

I just bought your theme and come across a few things I am having some issues with. Many I have been able to change myself (and will post how for anyone else who is looking for the same. Sorry, I am fairly new to this depth of dealing with WP so they might not be the best solutions.), but would like many of these to be defaulted or set as an option into the theme. I really like the theme, but because of some of the aftermarket customizing it renders the Theme Options Panel (optionsframework) useless because using it will result in loosing several customized options I have done, since it resets many of the css files; as well as updating the theme with patches could also wipe a lot of my work.

I do want to state first, that this may be a long list, but I do love the theme.

Here are some of the issues:

1. If using a top navigation instead of date/time the main navigation overlaps it if the top menu has enough items to go down that far. The top nav is showing z-index of 9999. I have tried several things in the CSS , but no dice.

2. Is there anyway to get a custom CSS style sheet into the editor that can be after all the other CSS files? There are several changes I would like to make that the default CPanel Theme Options area doesn’t handle, and if I have to alter several CSS files only to have to re-alter them if I use the CPanel at any time to make an change to the theme. I know I can add a custom style sheet into the header, but it would be nice to have something built into the theme to allow for CSS changes in the CPanel Editor that is separate from the style.css.

3. Anyway to add in the quick add/remove WP Admin CPanel tool bar at the top option? My last theme allowed this and it was very handy to be able to add posts and pages, and get to the admin dashboard easier. I was able to add it back in by changing the following code in the functions.php file:

add_filter('show_admin_bar', '__return_false');
to
add_filter('show_admin_bar', '__return_true');

I know I can get plugins for this, but I prefer not running a lot of plugins because of them causing issues with not being compatible and causing some lag with sites. So having the option to turn it on and off would be nice because I know this is a love it or hate it feature.

4. Is there a short code to make images do the thickbox / lightbox / Prettyphoto without having to add in the rel=”prettyPhoto” to the HTML ? I didn’t see anything about it on your preview site, but may have over looked it. I have tried several types of short codes I found on different blogs about prettyPhoto, but nothing worked. If not, can this be considered or a button on the editor’s toolbar for this?

I have added in code to the functions.php to make it so that any links that are image files will automatically add the rel=”prettyPhoto” to the link as a work around for now:

add_filter('the_content', 'addlightboxrel_replace', 12);
add_filter('get_comment_text', 'addlightboxrel_replace');
function addlightboxrel_replace ($content)
{   global $post;
    $pattern = "/<a>]*).(bmp|gif|jpeg|jpg|png)('|\")(.*?)>(.*?)<\/a>/i";
    $replacement = '</a><a rel="prettyPhoto['.$post->ID.']">$7</a>';
    $content = preg_replace($pattern, $replacement, $content);
    return $content;
}

5. When on the list of posts for a category you can added a pagebreak ( the <-more-> tag) to the post to only show a snippet. This shows correctly on the category page, however, there is no “Read More” or “More” link. Same goes for the snippets on like the “show recent post” and “Show recent review”. This could be a bit confusing to readers as the image isn’t a a link and the only link to the post is the title. Can this be added?

I have been able to add it in to the “Show Recent _” by changing the following code in the functions.php:
function new_excerpt_more($more) {
    return '...';
}
add_filter('excerpt_more', 'new_excerpt_more');
to
function new_excerpt_more($more) {
    global $post;
    return '<a style="float:right;" class="moretag" href="'. get_permalink($post->ID) . '"> Read more...</a>';
}
add_filter('excerpt_more', 'new_excerpt_more');

For the Categories page I had to go into the category.php and change the following code:

the_content('',TRUE,'');
to
the_content('<a style="float:right;" class="moretag" href="'. get_permalink($post->ID) . '"> Read more...</a>',FALSE,'');  

6. Width on the short code of embedding videos doesn’t seem to work. Height does, but width is stuck at 100%. Is this intentional?

Thank you for creating a beautiful theme, and in advance for any help.

ZERGE

Hi :),

1. I need a link to your site.

2. At this moment only add a custom stylesheet into the header. Maybe in the future, it will appear as a separate theme features.

3. This panel was turned off intentionally. And as you correctly pointed out, it is not difficult to turned on.

4. A more practical way of adding

rel="prettyPhoto"

5. Yep, you are right.

6. Show me an example where it doesn’t work.

1. http://badmovieisbad.com/ – This is my test site. The only thing installed on the WP page is the theme. I mimicked your preview and made a smaller top menu. As you can see with the “Theme Widgets” link it goes under the Main Navigation.

Same thing happened on the site I am working on: http://bloodyrares.com

I was able to fix it by removing the z-index that was assigned to the [pre].sf-menu, .sf-menu * [/pre] in the style.css, but removed the fix so you can see the bug.

2. I will add it into the header following the other style sheets, and found by simply adding the custom css file into the theme folder it added it to the editor. So was simple enough.

6. http://bloodyrares.com/?reviews=blackboxtv Using the shortcode from your preview, I have the video set to id=”H_6F0Xcd6qg” type=”youtube” width=”20” height=”420”][/pre]

Did one on my test site as well: http://badmovieisbad.com/sintel-official-hd-trailer. Using the same shortcode with width set to 20.

I have tried with and without a height set. I have tried adding in %, px, and just the plain number. The iFrame is showing to have the width set, but the css is showing: [pre] .single-video-post iframe, .video-frame iframe { border: 5px solid #2A2A2A; display: block; line-height: 0; width: 100% !important; } [/pre]

The width 100% !important is overriding anything set in the shortcode.

Hope that helps ya out. :)

Hi, i am a new WordPress user. I praticly know NOTHING about wordpress. I just know how to do basic things like activate themes etc…I know praticly nothing about codec. Do you think it is a good idea to buy the Crumble theme? I want to create a blog. Thx for your help ;)

ZERGE

Hi QcLegend,

Yep, Crumble theme best suited for Magazines, News and Blogs. So if you like the design and functionality of the theme, of course, I recommend to buy it.

If you will have questions on setting up Crumble theme, you can always ask me a question and I will help you.

This is by far the best experience I have had with a theme and it’s developer. The theme is beautiful and very responsive. But what I find to be a huge advantage over other themes is how great the support is. Within 2 days the developer helped me with all my questions to make my site exactly how I wanted it. Past experiences with themes and developers cannot compare.

ZERGE

Thanks for the kind words ;)

Hello Zerge Awesome and easy to use theme u made there, great work. A real pleasure to work with it :)

i have two questions :) 1. The Facebook Social Counter do not work :/ Any idea how i can fix it? (Twitter works fine) 2. is it possible to change the background color of the sidebar ? (i would like to have it a bit darker

Keep up the good work ++ S199

ZERGE

Hi Semtex199,

Thanks for the kind word :)

1. I need to see your site.

2. Try to set ‘background-color’ for .widget :

.widget {
margin-bottom: 30px;
color: #EEE;
background-color: #333;
}

Hi

Are you able to make the mobile version of the site where it can detect mobile devices and display certain content? I would only want to post the latest posts in a few categories and not all widgets.

Let me know if this would be possible..

ZERGE

Hi,

For this you can use Media Queries in the file /css/layout.css

Hey Zerge!

After placing some placeholder content in the theme to see what it can do I’ve noticed in the 1 Column Reviews (w/recent reviews) widget in the Magazine that it does not link to the review posts. I get a 404 error.

The permalinks are accurate in the widget. The strange thing is I can’t even “view review” or “preview changes” on any review posts from within my dashboard either. I get the same 404 error.

Any ideas why?

ZERGE

I need an access to your WP admin panel and also FTP access. Send me a message through my profile.

ZERGE

Hi,

There are still problems with the Review?

QcLegend Purchased

Hi, after your advice, i purchase the theme.

I follow every instruction but when I click on ACTIVATE , this happens:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_get_theme() in /srv/disk11/1120585/www/thisisleg3ndqg.com/wp-content/themes/wp-crumblemagazine/admin/index.php on line 22

Well…i can do nothing but go in filezila and manually delete the theme folder because even the dashboard is getting me the same error O_O

Plz help? loll

ZERGE

Hi, QcLegend. What version of wordpress and php are you using?

QcLegend Purchased

NVM ;)

QcLegend Purchased

Haha yeah it was the version :)

ZERGE

On older versions you need to replace the function call. In the file admin / index.php to uncomment the line number 21, and comment out the line number 22. It should be as follows:

$themedata = get_theme_data( get_template_directory() . '/style.css' );
//$themedata = wp_get_theme();

Great theme my man, I have been able to sort everything out without a problem, well all but one thing haha. I am in the “Styling Options” and I chose to upload one big background image but I want to to be centered and not repeat. I cannot find the background editor in the stylesheet and I found some stuff in the “styles.php” but couldn’t get the proper effect I am looking for.

ZERGE

You have to change the style in css / options.css.

Default-user

Thank you sir, for anyone having this same problem I found it under the body tag and I just edited the code to look like this…

*/ body, .body-class { color: #eee; font-family: “Helvetica Neue”, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif; font-size: 12px; line-height: 18px; background: url(http://YOUR-URL-GOES-HERE.jpg) top center no-repeat; }

ZERGE

You need to change this in two files: css/styles.php and css/options.css

Can we create a sub-menu?

You know a second menu under the main one!

I.E : I have BLOG on the main menu and i want to be able to click on it and another menu appear under showing the blog’s categories :)

Is it possible?

Thx

ZERGE

Do you mean sub menu?

Watch this screencast – http://www.screenr.com/qSM8

QcLegend Purchased

Yes actually i ind out how to do it :) But i have another question How do i make the BG fixed on the screen like the demo?

Thx for you answer :)

ZERGE

1. Add (change) to the file styles.php a new parameter ‘fixed’:

body, .body-class {
    background: url(<?php echo $bg_upload; ?>) left top repeat fixed;
    background-color: <?php echo $body_background; ?>
}

2. For this you need a special plugin.

QcLegend Purchased

Ok, can you tell me what is the plugin? I’m srry but i don’t know a lot about websites so…

Zerge thank you I will check into that. I switched the search from the top and whenever I enter something into the search and you type something from the search it moves the whole site all the way to the right. I’m using Chrome. Are you able to check this out if I sent you logins to my site?

ZERGE

Yep, send me through my profile.

Zerge is there any way to have the script detect mobile devices so I can put a new layout for the mobile domain on m.domain.com and then just pull information from the DB? or is there an easier way not to include the whole site if the width is greater than 480px?

Thanks

ZERGE

Unfortunately I don’t have information on this issue.

This is a great theme! I only have one issue, and that is that there is no option to disable the feature image so that it doesn’t show in normal post (as this featured image is usually cropped) Is there a way to disable the featured image from showing in the actual post, or alternatively a way to change the setting so that it’s not cropped?

Thanks

I managed to fix the feature image problem by editing some of the code. You may want to look into adding a disable featured image option in future updates though.

Thanks

ZERGE

Thanks ashrafstakala,

I think it will be implemented in next updates.

Thanks a million for all the fast and efficient support :) this theme is pure awesomeness, i made the blog EXACTLY the way i wanted it :) +Top Center background image is ACE !!! (should be a standard options)

Thanks again and again :) amazing work. preview > www.djbabybang.com ++ S199

Hello Zerge,

First thank you for this beautiful theme!

However i don’t know how put the bloglist as the home blog. Can you explain me this please ? (I saw that there is a blog type if i want to create a page but i don’t find how add the blog posts inside and display them directly on the home)

Thanks!

ZERGE

Hi anthodev,

Try to change Reading Settings.
Menu Settings -> Reading and set as front page your Blog Page.

Thanks a lot for your help!

The theme works almost perfectly fine, i saw in the po references to Google+. There is a way to add it in the “Social Counter” ?

Moreover my Twitter followers count is at 0. Do you know how fix this ? :)

One last thing (and i stopped to annoy you), i think that i have to edit the theme to change the format of the date of the header and on the news). Am i right ?

Thanks and keep up the good work !

Oh and also, how can i load the Shortcode generator please ?

Thanks a lot!

After using a theme for more than a week I could say that it is just amazing, and customer support is outstanding and fast. Thanks, Zerge!
